"Freedom of speech is a basic human right that we all must remember and it is important for democracy and with the upcoming elections, we definitely need free speech. On Twitter, we are limited to a few characters, and what I've seen from these tweets have been powerful and helped me think of who I would like to vote for in the upcoming elections," she said during the question and answer round.

Other winners were Binibining Pilipinas Grand International 2021 Samantha Alexandra Panlilio of Cavite, Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental 2021 Cinderella Faye Obeñita of Cagayan de Oro, Misamis Oriental, and Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2021 Maureen Ann Montagne of Batangas.
